Goodbye November: Project Update

So the DH's first sweater is finished and I HATE it! The chest is not wide enough, which consequently makes the body to short when it stretches to fit. I also do not like the saddle shoulder look on him. Needless to say, I haven't touched it since finishing the neckline over Thanksgiving. When I have the heart, I will rip out the yoke, adjust the body, and make a raglan out of it. Then we will both be happy to show it in public.

So while ignoring the sweater, I have been working on a few smaller projects. I finished the Jaywalkers over the weekend and I think that they turned out nicely, thank you very much. I finally got them onto some KP Options and had no more drama with my DPNs. Whew! Also, I have to note that I don't understand the obsession over Socks That Rock. My Jaywalkers were done in the Fred Flintstone colorway, and while the yarn was quite nice to work with, it didn't live up to the hype. Still, a nice FO.

Another project that I have been working on is the Twist scarf from "Knitting New Scarves" by Lynne Barr. This book is amazing, with some intriguing architecture made into scarves; I want to knit half of the projects just to see how the 3D effect is acheived. For the first try, I settled on Twist, which turned out to be an ingeniously constructed pattern. It was also the perfect project to use up the last half of my handspun (original seen in the Two-Tone Shrug). I love how everything is progressing!

I am also working on a pair of Thudjas at the moment because I seem to have a strong case of Startitis. I blame Ravelry. Hopefully this will become a full-blown case of Finishitis before Christmas rolls around. One can only hope...
